The Wilderness Systems Ride 135 ACK Angler Kayak Fishing Package has everything an angler needs to get right out on the water fishing. The Ride 135 performs well in flat water or surf, and it's stable enough to stand up in for sight casting. The package includes your choice in color on the Ride 135, Bending Branches Slice Glass paddle, Stohlquist Fishing PFD, two installed flush mount rod holders, one installed Scotty Bait Caster rod holder, and a paddle leash.
The Ride 135 does what it is supposed to do perfectly. It really is the ultimate platform for fishing - my primary reason for purchasing, photography, or physical fitness. It is very comfortable for all day adventures. There are plenty of storage options, and they will keep your items dry. I do use a dry bag too. It is a very stable boat, but admittedly a little heavy too. There are inexpensive trailers to pull behind your vehicle to help, if weight is an issue. I would not hesitate to purchase again from ACK. The boat was wraped for success and arrived in perfect condition. ACK's customer service is what you wish all retailers had.
Bought this for the wife and she really enjoyed it. It's not overly heavy so she can load and unload it herself, shoudl she need to. It's very responsive in the water and the stability allowed us to put one of our dogs in the back and make it a day trip. Excellent kayak!
